Tomasz, you present an interesting and truthful point.  

 

The downside and upside of Android is indeed its apps.  They are certainly not as polished on Android as they are on iOS.  The reason being that the developer tools for Android are not as complex as they are for iOS.  On the plus side, it seems that the Android apps are much less expensive than they are on the App Store (probably due to Apple getting a bigger cut of developer cut) and there are far more free programs available.  

 

Truth be, neither phone is perfect.  Most people switch to Android due to a wider variety of phones and screen sizes.   Those who stick with iPhone do so because it's easy to use right out of the box and everything integrates incredibly well with each other.  iOS is a remarkable platform, no doubt, but is also highly restrictive to anyone that wants to customize it to their liking.

 

I don't think anyone here is totally trashing the iPhone.  It still stands as a awe-inspiring device.  It's just that many of us that were blown away by the introduction of the iPhone in 2007, are wondering why the device still remains mostly the same 6 years later.  It's still a very tiny phone with an operating system that really hasn't advanced itself in all that time.  The reason why many of us moved to Android is because we were tired of squinting at the tiny display screen.  

 

I suppose, in the end, it's still great to have a choice between both phones and as you correctly pointed out, there are plusses and minuses to each.

I am not trying to start a flame war either but I left the iPhone after 6 years because I wanted all the things you just listed. Went with a Galaxy Note 2 and I love it so much that I will never go back to iOS. Try Android. I promise you will love it more than the iPhone

Noob,

 

Just a correction to what I wrote.  All extensions would be .oog.  I accidentally typed 00g in the first line of my reply.

 

Good Luck

The only potential problem I see is that you added the files as noti2.oog instead of noti1.00g.

 

What I did was take the two original files (Pen_att_noti1.ogg and Pen_det_noti1.ogg) and changed the .ogg to .bak on both.

 

Then I copied over the two sound files I downloaded that already have not1.ogg extensions.  

 

So, in essence, the sound files would be 1 and 2 instead of 2 and 3 as you chose.

 

Try that instead.

I don't particularly like Rooting my phone.  I have done it many times over, and really, it only takes a minute to do.  When I got the Note II I promised myself no rooting.  But this lightsaber thing was so cool I couldn't resist.  I just rooted my phone and followed the instructions.  Works perfectly and soooooo cool.  Just wish there was a way to do this without resorting to rooting.  Rooting is not the worst thing you can do to your phone, but I hate to play with the system files unless I have to.

Wardo,

 

I'm sorry....don't see the link to the tutorial.  

 

Do you have the AT&T SG3?  I am hoping the tutorial will work for that.  Also, does it get rid of TouchWiz?

 

Thanks for the help.
